Little Cahaba Bowls (collaboration with This is Alabama)
Alabama rivers are home to the most diverse collection of freshwater mussels in all of North America, with 180 species to be exact. its’ our desire to honor their life’s work by incorporating them into a clay body that represents their little clam-shaped homes best.
the empty shells are collected on the banks of the Little Cahaba River and fired into these pieces we like to call the Little Cahaba Bowl.
In partnership with This is Alabama, we made each one of these small batch ceramic pieces is beautifully unique. almost 6 inches in diameter and nearly 2 inches tall, these little bowls are perfect for holding coins or valuables on a desk or just sitting pretty on a shelf as a reminder of the unique rivers in Alabama. (for decorative use only)
a portion of the profits of each bowl will go to the Cahaba Riverkeeper a non profit organization that defends the ecological integrity of the Cahaba, it’s tributaries and watershed. @cahabariverkeep
